FY08 MCA PN 61882 Barracks, Fort Shafter, Island of Oahu, Hawaii
- Client: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
- Contract Amount: $27,103,000
The Fort Shafter Barracks project was a design-build contract to construct a high-rise unaccompanied enlisted personnel housing (UEPH) facility for 156 single personnel arranged in two-bedroom, one bath, and kitchen configuration. Being that the barracks was erected in Fort Shafter, the oldest military installation on Oahu and where most of the buildings were influenced in the early 1900’s, the theme for the design was “A Soldier’s Home in a Historical Setting.” Here, the building’s architectural details were designed similar to the surrounding structures providing a sense of unity, while incorporating all of the modern day features with the goal of upgrading the quality of life for the soldiers. A few of the building features and amenities included a chiller plant, barbecue pavilion, smoker’s hut, covered motorcycle and bicycle parking shelters, boot wash stations, and laundry facilities. Although the project was originally programmed to achieve a LEED Silver rating, the building is currently undergoing an evaluation for a Gold rating by the US Green Building Council.
The project was completed three months ahead of schedule and Nan, Inc. was presented with an Award of Excellence and an Award for Safety Excellence from the US Army Corps of Engineers for outstanding performance.
